Step 3. Create Mappings and Save Parameter Values

Step 3. Create Mappings and Save Parameter Values

You can select the mappings that you want to generate. To save parameter values for the selected mapping, reuse the mapping template parameter file and create more mappings. The wizard saves the parameter values for each mapping that you selected in the mapping template parameter file.
Save the parameter values to a mapping template parameter file. If you save the parameter file for a mapping and an error occurs while you generate that mapping, you can retrieve the parameter value settings.
To create the mappings and save the parameter values:
  1. From the list of mappings that appear, select the mappings that you want to generate.
  2. To create one mapping with multiple pipelines, click Create multiple pipelines in a single mapping, and then enter a name for the mapping.
  3. Click Save parameter values for the selected mappings, and then click Browse to navigate to the folder where you want to save the parameter file.
    By default, the Publish Template function creates a mapping template parameter file in the same location as the mapping template file. You can choose to overwrite the existing file or create a mapping template parameter file.
  4. Click Next.
    The wizard prompts you to export table definitions.
  5. Click Yes.
    The Export Object dialog box appears, and the table definitions are exported to the default location.
  6. Click Close in the Export Objects dialog box.
